Le Marchebag...

The real summer season is coming and I'm sure you'll all be heading towards the sea, the beach, or the resort!
What more do you need than a trendy, hippie elegant marchebag!!
Marchebags aren't just a summer bag, but it came from France, where people picked up the local bags they use in everyday life in Morroco, and have turned it into a trend.

The most sought after designer bag in the world is Hermes' Birkin bag named after Jane Birkin, the British actress who became famous in France in the 70's. She looked effortlessly chic even when she was carrying a basket full of her shopping or groceries. In France, Marche bags (also known as the couffin bag) are a common sight in France and they are weaved in Morocco using palm tree leaves. They are light, sturdy, practical, versatile and 100% natural. They are also less harsh to the touch compared to baskets made in China. Saw some beautiful ones at a fair so I got one for grocery shopping. It will also be perfect for a picnic in the park.

Ask anyone French, and more or less, they will know "Marchebag"...Let's start this French/Moroccan Trend here too!!
Tell me what you think. Do you like Marchebags?

with love from Marrakech,
